Nicholas ray belonged to the Directors Hollywood that soul protested against the producer of the dictatorship that had given deceived the public all more clichéd and soulless films, but still were forced again and again to please their whims. He may have been would happy to wear his red jacket, sit in the car and rush to the edge on speed, but he had all day to hang around in tire polishing up Shine is mirrored nuts. However, ray different from many brothers-in -  unfortunately, that being in Hollywood the mouth of the dragon, have almost chewed, not have given up, but I tried to make him indigestion. Many say that it is turned and turned out pretty good, but it again, sometimes it seems that the dragon nothing and felt, without problems swallowing prey whole. But Godard and Wenders are not could be wrong, not is it true?

One of the first paintings that brought fame to ray, while in two ways — "In a lonely place" on first glance unassuming noirci with Humphrey Bogart in the lead role, who later became classics of Hollywood. Some unusual visible not directly. All like removed the canons, with compulsory components of the film Noir: quite a gloomy atmosphere, supported by a terrible murder, a femme fatale, in which necessarily the first sight will love the main character, and, of course, Humphrey Bogart, a man with a PhD in the sarcasm and cynical Professor of Sciences. Without in the cost almost no self-respecting film-Noir. The not less, not note that ray took a traditional Noir. The genre of "In a lonely place" can be defined as Noir with a sneer. So if consideration will be that the atmosphere so and dark, the woman doesn't fatal, a Humphrey Bogart at all romantic. The ending is heavily saturated with despair — just a silly coincidence which can not be called the real rock, a constant companion of the heroes of film Noir. Murder goes background and not interested Director. Strangled the hatcheck girl Mildred serves as the catalyst of a love relationship between the main characters. After the murder, they met, due to suspicions broke up.

The profession of the hero, Humphrey Bogart — the writer of a reason. In this can be seen on the roll with the other a Noir film, released in the same year — "sunset Boulevard", where will also reveal behind the scenes secrets of Hollywood figures. However, in the film ray all done times neater and thinner than the Wilder. Screenwriter, writer of the adaptation of the book, which is not read Studio boss accepts all of the lasciviousness and producing under the sign of a hit. In all of this feels malicious mockery. And the mockery is not just over others, however, and over ourselves on the fuss surrounding the debate about that it but no. So on indictment a replica of Humphrey Bogart addressed to his colleague, "You — a popcorn vendor" in the answer is true "You, too. The only difference is in that I admit that." Nicholas ray mocking Narumi in a few years "johnny Guitar," he will turn to feet on the head westerns, and a few in the open to protest the "Rebel without a causes". All the movies will be a success, and audience not be said, not will want to notice the differences. Popcorn, but with the claim. And now sit think had the mind of Godard, saying that movie — this is Nicholas ray.

Days beautiful well-groomed women who know their value.

The days when men wore suits and were gentlemen.

The days of Humphrey Bogart — a walking encyclopedia of cynicism.

Witty dialogue, drinking, murder, drinking, witty dialogue.

I even missed who in the end it turned out killer. Not be surprised if even the Director, removing the film, they realized that forgot to name the killer, and dosnyal a few plans.

Black and white film, black-black world.

Easy Thriller, concerning a little behind the scenes of Hollywood of the 50s. An aging, cynical Director, drinking, fighting, beautiful but strong and proud girl, murder, suspicion and gloomy suspense.

Very good, atmospheric movie on a lover connoisseur. Excellent acting, staging, slightly twisted plot with hints violence and mental disorder. Tension begins to mount in the beginning and does not let go until the end. Good music, good humor, good plot and climax.

Quality cinema of the mid-twentieth century. If you fan of black and white and classic, the film is required to browse. If you are just a curious spectator, nothing will if you don't look.
